Stacking the Shelves #5

Posted January 27, 2013 by Kara in Stacking the Shelves / 18 Comments

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.


As Kara has kindly reported, I have been battling the flu this week (A wonderful gift from the youth of America). My book haul seems to be as puny as my failing immune system for this week.

Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat by Lynne Jonell – I bought this book because of the illustration on each page.  It has a flipbook and a falling rat!

Maximum Ride (Graphic Novel) by James Patterson – I tried to read the book back in November, and the writing was so horrible that I instantly went back and returned the book.  Everyone seems to love this series, so I thought I would give the manga a chance.

Kindle:

I, Nemo – reduced price at Amazon for the Kindle.  This has been on my wish list for some time now.

Shakespeare Vs Lovecraft: A Horror Comedy Mash-Up featuring Shakespeare’s Characters and Lovecraft’s Creatures by D.R. O’Brien – How could I turn down something with THAT description?!

The Goddess Chronicle by Natsuo Kirino – The description sounds just so good.

The Mapmaker’s War by Ronlyn Dominque – I can’t get this one on my Kindle.  Grrrr….

What books did you add to your ever-growing shelves this week?

    • It is so cute – I need to record it one day to show everyone!

      I was so sad that the first 20 pages caused me to return the book. Just…horrible. I am glad someone agrees with me – I thought there was something wrong with my brain. 🙁

  1. I’ve read a few of Natsuo Kirino’s books, and they’re so amazingly dark and gritty in this way it seems only Japanese crime fiction can be…the Goddess Chronicles sounds a little different but I hope it’s just as good!

  2. I haven’t read any of the Maximum Ride novels by Patterson but I did read Confessions of a Teenage Murder Suspect and I liked it a lot! I really want to give his other YA books a shot.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    You got some great sounding books this week. I haven’t read the Maximum Ride series, but heard after book 4 it goes downhill. I hope you feel better soon.
